Forging ahead: New Year’s Eve celebrations feature music, food, fun

Ryan McGarvey loves life on the road.

It’s something he’s become accustomed to over the past decade.

“I get into a routine of things, and it just becomes a way of life,” he says. “The best thing about (touring) for me is spreading my music to new ears, gaining new fans, as well as getting to see so many people that have become near and dear to our hearts on the road.”

Of course, there is a downside.

“I don’t typically get too homesick, but there’s always something about home that you can’t come across finding on the road,” he says.

Luckily, McGarvey is heading back to Albuquerque for a New Year’s Eve show at the Launchpad. He’s spent the majority of the year on the road – mostly overseas.

In fact, he picked up a few international awards this year.

“To be recognized with accolades outside of the U.S. (is amazing),” he says. “I just recently won my third European Blues Award, and it always amazes me to see the great company I am in.”

This is the last issue of 2017, and staff writer Rozanna M. Martinez has a round up of the New Year’s Eve events locally.

On New Year’s Day, hip-hop artist Krizz Kaliko will be at the Launchpad, and I got a chance to catch up with him.

And read more here about the Foto Forum in Santa Fe, which begins today. I got a chance to chat with Marina Eskeets about her photography and the approach she takes to her art.

As usual, we have movie reviews. This week, we have “All the Money in the World” and “Molly’s Game.”
